This shows you a few of the tree decorations we have for sale at the shop right now. So many of them will add that whimsical look to your tree.
I don’t know about you, but I have been putting up so many themed trees in the past years, and my favourite part of doing this is getting all the ornaments out of the Rubbermaid containers at which time remembering the places I bought them, the people who gave them to me and who I was with when buying them.
Some of my favourite ornaments are the ones I have had for many years, given to me by family, friends and students at the school I used to work at. I can’t quite understand people who change their ornaments every year, to match the “trends of the time”.
Enjoy decorating this season
We have a lot of knit hats in the shop right now, for sale. Considering they are hand knit, prices are vey good. When you look outside right now, the time has come for a nice warm hat to be a necessary part of your wardrobe. It is cold!!! Brrr.
We are building up our collection of buttons in the shop right now. The collection is growing every week. Enjoy!
It is looking a lot like Christmas at Village Creations right now!
In a couple of weeks I will be bringing in some vintage ornaments for sale. Over the past few years I have put up and decorated as many as seventeen trees of different sizes in our home, and find it is not as easy as it used to be, so will be starting to “downsize Christmas” around our place. Our shed is full of Rubbermaid containers full of ornaments - would you believe 50+ !
It is time!
The last two sweaters we have knit in the shop for you inspiration! The first one is knit from Ultra Denim but can also be knit from Big Softee.
The lovely mauve one is knit from Aaran that comes in a huge ball, big enough for this sweater. Enjoy!
One of the “hot” crafts right now is FELTING! In the shop, we have made up items to give you inspiration, great books and Kits from Woolpets.
In the kits you will find the needles and roving that you will need to complete the kit. You will have to buy a felting pad or use a very thick sponge you may already have. I have the supplies needed for you to complete a project you may want to design on your own.
You will find it a fun project!
Been getting more and more books into the shop to help give you some inspiration in your knitting! Here are only a few of them.
I just got a few kits in from Knit Picks in past day. Putting them out in the shop today, so hope you get a chance to come in to see them. I will be making up my own kits for the fall also.
What you will see :
Double Twist Cowl with merino and silk yarn
Scarf and Hat set with merino and silk yarn
Starry Stole with Merino yarn and beads
Hat, gloves and scarf set with Merino and alpaca
Beautiful scarf set from wool and nylon combination
The yarns all feel wonderful and think any one of the kits would be a wonderful gift, either as a kit or knit up by you.
